Good trade for both I think. Blues fill their need with the best goalie available and don't lose any of their big time prospects. Sabers add picks and can maybe flip Stewart for even more futures.

McKenzie, said buffalo might try to trade Halak to Minnesota and Stewart to Ottawa.

Apparently Minnesota is interested in Marty to.
I'd post the link, but I have no clue how to post a tweet on here or at all.

Cordell doesn't know anything we don't know.  Still hard to find Brodeur a home.

Buffalo is really doing everything it can to win the Connor McDavid sweepstakes.

Seems their doing what the Sixer's are doing right now, stacking up on picks like there's no tomorrow. Forget this season, look ahead in three or four years. They could be really good.

It works more easily in the NBA. How's that strategy worked out in Edmonton? Unless you end up with 2 of the 5 best players in the league like Pittsburgh, it's dicey

It's maybe a 50/50 proposition. Worked for the Kings and the Hawks. And Edmonton could very well turn the corner at anytime.

Buffalo seems to be doing a good job of it. They have the foundation of a solid defense in place. A good goalie in Enroth. Some good forward prospects and a heavy volume of picks coming up. And they're set up pretty well for the McDavid sweepstakes. If that comes through, the Sabers will be a Cup team.

Islanders, Panthers, Panthers again, Thrashers - it's not really a 50/50 proposition.  The Sabres should flip some of these 2015 picks for actual players at the 2015 draft, if they can.  If they hold on to all these picks I will have to doubt their success.

Yeah, I think they should be holding on to some of their established guys, too. Down the road, I bet they'll have a decent core of young players: Enroth, Zadorov, Ristolainen, Grigs, Girgs, possibly Armia, and whoever else they draft this year. But even if most of those guys turn out, it's going to be a long while before they can make anything happen.

 

But, I could be wrong. If they can flip Halak and Stewart, and see if Moulson will bring them another first, maybe a two year rebuild can change things. As Daniel said, if Buffalo gets lucky enough to get the first overall pick in 2015, McDavid looks like a guy you can build a franchise around.

You gotta give to get but that's a lot for Miller/Ott. I don't really get Ott over Stewart but maybe it's a dollars thing.

From what I read last night, that 3rd round pick in 2016 is actually a conditional 2014 1st round pick going Buffalo's way if they reach the Conference Finals or re-signs Miller....

 

Halak, Stewart, a potential 1st in 2014, 1st in 2015 if St. Louis reaches the Conference Finals or re-signs Miller

 

for

 

Ryan Miller and Steve Ott

 

 

 

Ok yeah, gross overpayment when you step back and look at all the pieces involved; but will be worth it if St. Louis gets a Cup, which they look like favorites, in my opinion, to do so.

i disagree that it's overpayment. Buffalo got a good return but I don't think St. Louis gave up anything that will hurt them. Halak has no value to the blues now, Stewart has played like an average 3rd line and fell out of favor with them, and everything else is pieces that would only contribute at the nhl level 3 years down the line at least.like I said its a good trade for both, even if it turns into 2 firsts.
